How does Weerman e-commerce work?
View the demo. It should answer most of your questions. Once you have received your log on details from Weerman, you can start making purchases immediately. If this is your first time working with this kind of computer system, you might want to call Weerman for assistance before getting started. A member of our staff can talk you through the entire process.

What payment options are offered by Weerman?
If you visit the Cultra division to make your purchases, you can pay by cash debit card, cash or credit card. If you would like Weerman to send you your products, you can pay by bank transfer or credit card.

Weerman only gives credit after receiving approval from our credit insurance company or after receiving other concrete certainties.

Credit card payments: you only need to provide us with your credit card details once. Every time you place an order, it will be charged to that credit card. Naturally you can cancel this authorisation at any time. If you would like to pay by credit card, contact us to receive a credit card authorisation form.  

How can I apply for a Cultra purchasing card?
You can only purchase from the Cultra wholesaler centre if you are a floral or horticultural retailer. You can receive a Cultra purchasing card during your initial visit. Click on this link for more information.

What is the minimum purchase amount at Weerman?
You can buy by the bunch at Cultra. At the export division, you are required to buy by the full package. If you shop at Cultra in person, however, you can purchase any quantity you desire (or nothing at all). If Weerman arranges transport of your purchase, there is a minimum requirement of 1 transport cart.

What is the difference between Weerman’s purchasing system and that of other similar companies? 
More than 80% of the batches bought daily are not yet sold at the time of purchase. This percentage is much lower or even 0% at most other companies. Before the batches leave the auction and arrive at Weerman, more than half have often already been sold through the e-commerce system. Every day an average of 60 to 70 major wholesalers make purchases using this system. They can view all products, prices, quantities purchased, special offers and market fluctuations in real time all morning long. Our unique combination of export e-commerce and the large Cultra division in Aalsmeer enables us to work in this fashion. 

How is Weerman able to offer better deals than other similar companies?
(Also see previous answer). Since a large number of European wholesalers are able to follow the auction together with Weerman purchasers through the e-commerce system, our purchasers can buy almost any product desired by our customers. This is because customers can monitor the progress of the auction in real time and buy from Weerman directly.

When was Weerman established?
Weerman was established in 1946 by Meindert Jelle Weerman. It was originally a family business and has since grown to be one of the five largest companies at the FloraHolland Flower Auction in Alsmeer, the largest flower centre in the world.

How large is the company? 

Weerman supplies hundreds of Dutch retailers and has around 150 European wholesale partners. Our team of more than 90 serves our customers with the highest level of service possible each and every day.
